They're rich in a number of nutrients, most notably folate, manganese, tryptophan, copper, iron, and of course, healthy protein. Due to their high tryptophan content, chickpeas are an excellent food choice for people who have trouble getting restful sleep. Read more

Korean Tofu Recipes

I think for most people, organic tofu is a healthy food choice. It's rich in healthy protein, and unlike flesh meats like beef, chicken, and pork, tofu doesn't tend to create inflammation in the body, which is why I generally recommend it to people with chronic, degenerative health challenges.
